Stayed a couple of nights and found the hotel of good quality. It's a bit of a walk into the central city but not too far, and an easy walk from the train station (unless you ask a policemen who sends you by the most circuitous route imaginable!!). A fridge and safe deposit box in the room would be a useful addition, as would a guest laundry room.
I would echo the criticism of the air con. No explanation given in-room as to why it shuts down - I thought it was faulty. And 21 degrees is higher than many would want the room to be set at (I usually go for about 18 degrees). Outside temperatures are not reflected inside the hotel rooms. An unusually hot summer is no excuse - the guest should be able to control their own environment.
Rooms facing the main arterial road are a bit noisy but not too bad.
Good sized rooms and well maintained.
